Iomega Zip 750 Drive

It looks like my Iomega 750 USB drive has died. There is no light on the drive and I cannot extract the disc which is within it. How do I get the disc out and is it worth attempting a Fix.

Straighten a paper clip and insert it into the little hole on the power button. You have to stick it in there kind of far, but you'll get your disk out.

Let me guess, you both are Mac users. Probably upgraded to a new Mac OS? Now it looks like your zip drive has died.

I'm working on fixing this same problem. The new Mac OS won't detect the Zip Drive and the classic environment isn't supported.

How do you get a disk to pop out of a iomega zip 100


Hello.

If your iomega drive is connected to your computer, open My Computer and right-click on the Zip disk drive icon and choose the option to eject.

If unsuccessful, or the drive is not connected to your computer, remove the disk manually. Look for a small hole or lever. If a small hole, use a straightened paper clip and push into the hole to remove the disk. If a lever, lift and pull backwards.

Hope this helps.

HOW TO FORMAT A ZIP DRIVE FOR MACINTOSH SYSTEM 7.6.1. I need to copy data from my old mac's hard drive in order to copy it to a new machine.


Format on your old Macintosh using standard Mac HFS, then your new Mac will read the files without problems. Reformat the discs if they came pre-formatted for DOS as the filenames won't copy properly and will be very slow to read/write If your new Mac is FireWire/USB only, then you'll need to track down a USB Zip drive (the 100Mg or 250meg versions will read your discs ok.)

I had a computer with a slot for reading iomega ZIP 100 disc. My new computer does not have this. Is there a device to read my zip dizc and send the contents to a USB port?


IOMEGA make a USB ZIP drive that reads and writes 100 and 250 Mb disks. Don't know if this is available any more, you might be able to pick one up 2nd hand.
If you still have your old computer, try networking your old and new computer together so you can transfer data from the ZIP drive on your old computer to your new one.

Iomega zip port


First of all, make certain you are only using 100 MB disks in a 100 MB reader.

If the problem is more complex than that, I have several questions:

Can you read different disks?

what type of connection is the zip drive using with the computer? USB?

does the zip drive need an external power supply?

will the zip drive successfullly read disks when connected to a different computer?

does the zip drive appear under my computer at all? even as an empty drive?

what operating system are you using?
